I walked into the local music shop today and played a Red Special for the first time.

I need suggestions on how to get $2000 before some other fuck buys the thing. "Get a job" is a legitimate answer, don't worry, I'm already trying to find one.

But yeah, give me other answers like 'ransom rich people' or 'sell your virginity on eBay'. But seriously, help me figure this shit out before someone buys the thing...
I played it in the shop and it was *beautiful*.

There's a thought!

Then again, if you'd seen the last thing I built in woodwork, you wouldn't suggest such things :D I can play these things, but I don't think I could build one.

what about taking out a loan? (and let your parents sign it for instance)... then you pay back the money to them on a monthly basis?

2000 USD * 24 months = 91 USD/month
(9% interestrate calculated) ;-)

What about that? (that's how I financed my first electrical Roland Piano, well on an interestrate of 3,5% ;-)

Sell any of your other guitars. I reckon you won't be needing 'em.


Creativity can always cover for a lack of knowledge.

Heh, I've got one other electric, but it's my baby, I've played it since I was 11 :(

My dad owes me around 3000 but I sort of... need that money for tuition next year.

If I sell a pancake with the face of Jesus Christ in it, would that fetch a lot of money? People are buying stupid things all the time.

Birthday? You don't need a Red Special, you can play mine. Come to Perth!

Haha -

Hey look all, I'm thinking of just claiming the money my Dad owes me (muahaha) and buying the fucking thing before someone else does.

If I do this, it's a good move right? Like - I'll at least get a bit of money back off it if I have to get rid of it?

I'm offended, I asked him about Face it Alone and he didn't answer. Maybe even HE doesn't have a copy.

Well there's the rub, I can probably afford both if I'm careful, and at the moment the guitar I'm using for TAFE is in real bad shape.

That and it's a *really* nice guitar, it just felt so nice playing haha.

Seriously, if you want it, ask if you can put a deposit on it, so no one else can buy it, and then pay them when you can! Worked for me! Check how much they want for a deposit first, then work on getting the deposit in!
